In the realm of Web3 finance, scalability and efficiency are paramount. Central to this evolution is the emergence of multi-VM (Virtual Machine) environments, enabling blockchain platforms to support a diverse array of smart contract languages and execution environments. 

inEVM is essential to this paradigm shift, and is the latest milestone from Injective. inEVM signifies substantial progress in interoperability among leading blockchain networks and emphasizes Injective’s commitment to fostering an integrated Web3 network.

A number of key infrastructure platforms were critical In building inEVM. Among these, Hyperlane was critical in enabling seamless cross-chain interoperability and token bridging, connecting Injective and inEVM with the inEVM bridge.

This spotlight delves deeper into what Hyperlane is and how it accelerates inEVM.

What is Hyperlane?

Hyperlane is a permissionless interoperability layer built for the modular blockchain stack. It allows for seamless connections across disparate blockchain environments. With Hyperlane, developers can deploy interoperability and bridging to any layer 1, rollup, or appchain, in any VM. This universal compatibility enables chains equipped with Hyperlane to communicate effortlessly with one another, laying the foundation for a truly interconnected blockchain ecosystem.

Part of Hyperlane's mission is the empowerment of Interchain Applications – applications that span multiple blockchains and abstract the complexities of the multi-chain complexities away from users.

How Permissionless Interoperability Scales Injective

With Hyperlane integrated, Injective gains the unique scaling feature of Permissionless Interoperability. Anyone can deploy Hyperlane on any chain or rollup, adaptable to any VM. In turn, this enables Injective to expand to any chain without needing the Hyperlane core team in any capacity.

Traditional interoperability providers need to manually deploy on every new chain and require chains to lobby them for deployments. This is a significant bottleneck for new chains, and stunts their growth.

Now with the permissionless scaling of Hyperlane, Injective can tap into new chains in the modular ecosystem even faster.

Utilizing Hyperlane for inEVM

The integration of Hyperlane within inEVM marks a significant milestone in the evolution of cross-chain interoperability. At the core of inEVM lies its inherent interoperability between the WebAssembly (WASM) and Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) environments. 

Hyperlane facilitates seamless token bridging, enabling the transfer of assets across different blockchain environments, but it transcends being merely a bridge. inEVM harnesses Hyperlane to engage with WASM-based Injective dApps and assets, and Hyperlane serves as a universal, permissionless interoperability layer tailored for inEVM. 

With Hyperlane integrated into Injective's inEVM, developers can construct interchain applications that shield users from the complexities of the multichain landscape. Whether a user seeks to develop a solidity dApp enabling transactions directly within Injective's WASM apps, Hyperlane makes it easy.

The core features of Hyperlane include:

  1. Contracts: Hyperlane exposes on-chain contracts that allow applications to send and receive messages between chains.
  2. Agents: Agents in the network operate the protocol by adding security and relaying messages across chains.
  3. Applications: Applications that utilize Hyperlane to send and receive messages between different chains. 

Additionally, with the deployment of Warp Routes – Hyperlane's token bridge application – users can now transfer assets such as INJ, USDC, and USDT between the native Injective chain, Ethereum, and inEVM. This integration not only enhances liquidity within the inEVM network, but also opens up new avenues for TVL to flow into inEVM from Injective, enriching the ecosystem and fueling further growth and development. Start bridging now with the inEVM bridge.

The interoperability between inEVM and Injective's WASM layer

Due to Injective’s integrations with various prominent blockchains and the liquidity the ecosystem gathered over time, a builder can also deploy a dApp on inEVM that accesses liquidity and users from sovereign networks, by just connecting to Injective.

The Future of inEVM

inEVM brings a groundbreaking infrastructure stack designed to hyperscale multi VM development. With inEVM, builders can create a legion of new applications that not only retain the highest performance standards but also directly composes across the IBC and Solana ecosystems over time.

Every single facet of inEVM has been custom built to meet the needs of sophisticated applications, including a hyper scalable execution layer as well as a modular DA layer. This combined with the near zero fees offered by Injective, makes inEVM the foremost solution for Ethereum native builders everywhere.
